A Good Omen

After a rather gloomy day, both weather-wise and emotionally, it was such a nice surprise this evening when I noticed a rosy glow throughout my house. I ran to a window and looked up at the sky. It was covered with puffy pink clouds – not just one or two, but lots of them, everywhere I looked. It was the brightest sky I’d seen in many days. It made me feel happy.

My mood had been down and this seemed like a good omen—the encouragement I needed.

I've heard it said that clouds are pink just before a snowfall. I suppose this could be true since our weather channel this evening reported snowfall in parts of our state and others close by.

I’m not sure if pink clouds have any significance except for being beautiful, but I do know that everything changed for me today when I saw those puffy pink clouds floating in the evening sky.

No matter how one feels, good or bad, it seems something always shows up to change things. Nothing ever stays the same for very long. 

“True life is lived when tiny changes occur.”  ~Leo Tolstoy

It only takes one small change to make you feel better -- or worse. Good post Peggy!
